Subject: late file
Ciommo just gave me a heads up that Yoon is late filing an order on the BRA's process re: BC. Ciommo signed on and got him to scale back the language on it, but he said it is most likely coming from the Brighton Neighbors United group. It is critical of the board vote in January and the issue with the Zoning Commission in March. They didn't have the language yet, but they will get it to me as soon as they do. I'll keep you posted.
Mayor's Liaison to the City Council
Intergovernmental Relations, Room 968
Here is a response from Mark Ciommo:
I have always been consistent in my position on the Boston College Institutional
I have not contradicted any aspects of my disclosure form.
Councilor Yoon approached me to co-sponsor a late-file Order for a Hearing regarding the BRA process with Boston College's IMP. I provided him with my feedback that I supported several components of the Order for a Hearing, but that I thought that some of the language was inaccurate. I also felt that some of the language was politically charged.
He agreed to remove the aspects that we discussed and I joined him in co-sponsoring the order.
My intent was to remove politics from the discussion and focus on the BRA process. I think the end result was a more productive hearing.
The hearing was held on April 3rd. You can watch the video of it here: http://www.cityofboston.gov/CityCouncil/cc_video_library.asp?id=679
